americas wonder why we aren't doing more to arrest these people. house over site committee darrel issa says osama bin laden had been charged but was not apprehended. delays in apprehending the benghazi killers will only put american lives at further risk. meanwhile president obama is saying his decision to shut 22 embassies and conflicts around the world this week is not an over reaction because of what happened in benghazi. that is instead rooted in the real life threat to americans abroad. >> one thing i have tried to do as president is not over react but make sure that as much possible the american people understand there are general risks ever p out there. one thing we have seen over the last few years is how resilient we are. >> why did it take yesterday to file the charges against the suspects. >> peter doocy live. >> a massive manhunt underway this morning for suspected killer who may have abducted two children. it happened in san diego. anna kooiman is here with us live with the latest. >> good morning heather, good morning to everyone at home. his name is james dimaggio. police say

of america's most vocal critics. we shouldn't forget the difference between the ability of our government to collect information online under strict guidelines and for narrow purposes than the willingness of some other governments to throw their own citizens in prison for what they say online. >> stephanie: talking to you, putin. >> we're not there. >> stephanie: right. [ ♪ battle hymn of republic ] >> i'm with alan grayson. >> stephanie: what did edward snowden get wrong? everything. andrew lightman in the "l.a. times." we posted this up at stephanie miller facebook. snowden is out of his limbo. i hope the food is lousy, the winter is cold and the internet access is awful. >> it is russia. you're pretty much guaranteed all three of those. >> stephanie: i worry more about the damage snowden has done and could still do to strike the right balance between privacy and security. i do, too. he says those following snowden should understand two key points. first, though many things need to be kept secret in today's dangerous world, the line between secret and not secret is stark. the harsh t
not get back to anybody else in america. and she's hiding everything that she can. >> that was the anger and frustration she feels. but what amazed me from talking to the other family members who lost their children, who lost their siblings is just they just want answers. and they don't want this to be political. it seems obvious we need more answers. it also seems obvious this shouldn't be about the finger pointing and blame game going on in washington. i want to let all your viewers know, people can go to our blog because these families have foundations, ways to try to help to make sure this doesn't happen again. i hope people will go to those foundation websites and learn more about the families. >> you've spent a lot of time on this story. you put together a great team for tonight's special. what's the biggest takeaway you take from this documentary? >> reporte >> one of the things that amazed me the most, could this be prevented? the answer to that question is yes. we'll talk to one of the men who briefed chris stevens on security. his takeaway, the americans knew there were all the
told this reporter the great thing about america is there's all these jobs. that's not something americans think, like there's all these jobs. the other thing on these immigrants said was, the other great thing about america is that if you work hard you can get ahead in this country. >> i was here in texas a month or two ago, and it was a small business, just one little taxi come and the driver was an immigrant. i asked him about his experience when he came to america. he said when i arrived it was like i was woken up and i had these opportunities. >> i think it's kind of ambitious drive that is unique to immigrants. let's face it, there's -- 99% of the people in the world never move from where the girl. watauga but the 1% of people are ambitious enough and courageous enough to leave your homeland is a very courageous thing to do. so this is as an economist, i just think this is one of the kind of innate advantages of having immigration. number one, they are preselected for kind of economic success. and number two, this gets back to my point about china, let's face it, the bigges

. this is "special report". >>> good evening. we begin tonight with the confusing jobs picture in america. sometimes in washington and on the campaign trail you hear candidates calling for one armed economists. so those economists can't say on the one hand and on the other hand. in other words, you can use numbers to prove anything that is even remotely true. so as one key unemployment indicator hits a six-year low we take a closerer look at some of the arithmetic you don't often hear about. >> reporter: over the last four weeks jobless claims jobbed to 335,000 on average, the lowest average since november 2007. it is another sign coupled with last month's rate that the economy may be pulling out. >> i think the general pattern from this report, other data coming in is the economy is continuing to heal. >> reporter: another employment number may help to explain why businesses remain hesitant. it is the u-6 rate which includes under employment. it stands at 14.3%. >> we are in the fifth year of recovery and yet people are dropping out of the workforce. i have never seen that happen before. >> reporte
the iraq war. pew research showing 64% of people around the world have a favorable view of america. 64%. so that's a 13-point rise among those same countries when they were last vared back in '07. still in muslim countries like pakistan, frustration over u.s. foreign policy appearing to have only deepened 11%. there's been a dip in approval under president obama. >> leigh, you think that's just obama's transition to presidency over bush? because that last poll was in 2007 and what else would it say? >> i think that has a lot to do with it. i think the world is looking to us for a number of reasons. you know, but i think that it's, you know, i think the timing has a lot to do with it. that was a long time ago. i think under president obama i think our global image has improved. >> joe, you can't forget how unpopular we were at the end of the bush presidency, right? >> no doubt about it. i mean, things were going poorly. of course, we're still having some problems in the middle east but across the rest of the world, across europe, those numbers are certainly up. you know, ed rendell, we've be
and in latin america. sometimes from countries that didn't exist in the world of empire, in the colonial world of 1913, 100 years ago, and 1914 at the start of the first world war. diplomats today represent governments, as they always have, but they also represent international institutions like the united nations. you fly the flag of the united nations here at chautauqua. they represent international institutions like the world bank and the international monetary fund. and i even think people who work for nonprofit organizations, who are dedicated to combating poverty, who want to promote economic development, who are promoting health care, who are trying to promote peace, i think they're diplomats too,. so in that vein think of bill and melinda gates and the enormously positive impact those two people and their foundation are ching on the fight against live aids, the fight to eradicate polio, which is nearly complete. only three countries in the world where polio exists these days. think of the champion figure skater michelle kwan. you saw her in the olympics. she's joined the state departme
